I'm a French native and speak 3 other languages, English of course, Spanish and Italian.

I tutor French and Spanish but I also used to tutor English in France. I really love sharing the joy of speaking a foreign language. I would welcome any opportunity to teach my languages to any student who's motivated and curious about European cultures.

ABOUT MY METHOD: I usually like to see students 2 hours per week, but one hour can also be efficient depending on how we work. When I tutored English in France, my students were able to raise their scores after only 2 months. And most importantly, they started to appreciate the English language. I was successful because I taught them through their favorite subject. For example, one student loved geography and history, so we took New York as a subject and studied its history from the 17th century to now. Another student loved science and physics, and asked to study Einstein's biography and his research through English.

In brief, I want to make sure students feel they can learn/improve French and/or Spanish without having to struggle too much. Make it fun and light!


Thank you,
Florence L.

Very Detailed! — Florence has been working with my 10th grade son for about 6 months now and it has made a world of difference for him. He was really struggling with some specific things in his French class and she has cleared these up for him and helped him raise his grade. So glad I called her! ...
